Touch the Past. Archaeology Learning Adventures summer camp programs for teens offer a chance to experience archaeology firsthand. Have fun, make new friends, and gain experience in excavation and analysis. Read More!
Archaeology informs us about the world as no other field of study can. A stone tool may tell the story of a long-ago hunt. A fragment of pottery can reveal the contents of a meal, or the social networks that once connected far-flung communities, or links between ancient villages in southwest Colorado and contemporary Pueblo Indian people.
At our summer camp, you’ll get an authentic, hands-on introduction to archaeology at the pre-college level. After learning basic excavation skills in our simulated excavation, or “sim dig,” you’ll spend time in the field and in the lab. You’ll work with other teens, alongside our professional archaeologists. And the work you do will contribute to our research into a pivotal time in the American Southwest, when people were first making pottery, cultivating crops, and developing a new kind of community.
Our current excavation site was inhabited by ancestral Pueblo Indians (Anasazi) more than 1,000 years ago. Expect to get your hands dirty, touch the past, and make exciting connections between a time before the written word and our own digital age.
